Nothing important … just missing you guys while Iโ€™m being all grown up and sensible


So thought I’d share a few snaps from a quick walk I just took around the farm.

That won’t be doing much work this harvest I fear ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ. My dear father in law is one of those farm hoarders … ‘might come in useful one day’ type approach. And there’s me trying to live a Matsu life and de-clutter as I go now.

Matsu would be so proud of me but I’m hoping you will be too. Today I swept the patio ๐Ÿฅ‚

Yes. And what’s more, I really enjoyed it… I did that thing around the edge, not with the correct tools like real garden-lovers posses, but an old set of shears, a dustpan and brush and a co-op bag to contain the rubbish – such a rebel (it’s ok, I’ve got 97 under the sink to recycle).

I paused to drink squash and swore under my breath that the sun was no longer out – please don’t say that was our summer or I may have turn into Dracula’s wife (did he have one?)

Don’t laugh … I even washed some of the more mossy slabs! The effect is really quite sumptuous. I sat and admired, like one can who works from home, mentally listing all the things I should really have been doing.

But, sir, I’ve done my homework! Yes I have ๐Ÿ˜‡. A dialogue-only piece. No stage directions, no ‘he said, she said’ indicators. But 500 words of dialogue only, between two people from our WIP novel ๐Ÿ˜ฑ to see if we could find quality dialogue between them to show clarity about who’s speaking! I enjoyed it. Maybe I’ll share it with you when the course is over. It would be placed in a scene in a future chapter I’ve yet to write ironically!

Saw a card today with this message on the front and thought I might frame it rather than send it. ๐ŸŒธ

Had to be done!

Hope you are well. Talk to me … what have you been doing since the sun went away??
